Fun with the Coen Brothers

For the month of January the Art and Music Center is sponsoring the Thursday at Noon Film Series with the theme "Dark Humor for Dark Days: the Movies of the Coen Brothers." This Thurday,  January 14th, "Fargo" will be shown, followed consecutively by "The Big Lebowski," and  "O Brother, Where Art Thou." The Library has a number of books about the Coen Brothers and the movies they've written and directed. SFPL also has some screenplays - in library parlance - called motion picture plays.
